Wasp Cumbria News Update February 2014

February 3, 2014

Design improvements to help reduce the efficiency losses, highlighted in our trials in 2013, are now complete and component modifications are currently being carried out in order to facilitate a second series of Trials in 2014. In addition we have been developing a novel horizontal axis Tidal Turbine which we hope to test in 2014 to make full use of our existing Floatation unit and other components.

A complete redesign of our Tidal range project is also nearing completion and again in order to maximize resources we will carry out Trials of this system following completion of our Tidal Flow Trials. This will then allow WASP to compare results and identify the next phase of development towards commercialization and provide guidance regarding what additional level of funding will be required.
